How do we draw the lewis structure for CH3CHCHCN?

Connect all the carbons in a chain and attach the hydrogens to the outsides. Thats how I usually try to attack those. The N would connect to a carbon as well.

I believe the best way would be to treat this molecule as a hydrocarbon chain with the nitrogen on the end. The nitrogen will most likely be double bonded to the end carbon, but be sure to check how many electrons the molecule should have and formal charges.
